Wedding Favours, traditionally called "bombonieres" can be traced back to the early days of European history, when amongst the wealthy aristocrats they were given to celebrate birthdays, christening and marriages. In their earliest form, "bombonieres" were made of gold, precious stones, crystal or porcelain. Even its contents were of great value as sugar was a costly delicacy, prized for its supposed medical properties.
The giving of Wedding Favours to your guests symbolises the brides's acknowledgement of each friend and relative who shares her special day. They are a beautiful thank you and keepsake.
Wedding favours are made using 5 sugared almonds wrapped up in an attractive cover either in the form of delicate lace nets or elegantly designed boxes. Each of the 5 sugared almonds contained in all Wedding Favours symbolise, Health, Wealth, Happiness, Long Life and Fertility.
